Burlingame, CA, October 1, 2012 – ARES Security Corporation, previously part of ARES Software, has been officially established to serve the government and commercial security markets. The new company will provide software and services that leverage 3D modeling and simulation technologies to visualize, analyze, and optimize security environments.
“Upon the successful launch of our new solution, AVERT Essentials, the ARES shareholders determined that we should create a new company, ARES Security, to continue to serve our Department of Energy and Department of Defense clients while growing our future with the non-regulated commercial markets,” said Dr. Richard J. Stuart, President and CEO of ARES Security Corporation. This new company will focus on providing security solutions to nuclear, defense, oil and gas, space and transportation customers.
Mr. Robert H. Scott, III, P.E., former Executive Director of Security Solutions Strategy at Intergraph Corporation, and Mr. John Halsema, former Senior Vice President, Public Safety and Homeland Security of Rolta International, have joined ARES Security to lead the business development and product development divisions respectively. “I am excited to join the ARES Security team. With over 25 years in the software and security industry, I recognize the unmet need in the marketplace to evaluate the effectiveness and manage the costs of security systems,” said Mr. Robert H. Scott, Vice President of Business Development.
ARES Security’s optimization solutions are based on the AVERT product family which evolved from AVERT Professional, a solution created specifically for the regulated nuclear community. After 12 years of serving the government and receiving the Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act certification and accreditation by the Department of Defense, ARES has developed AVERT Essentials. This solution includes all the core functionality of AVERT Professional with an intuitive user interface appropriate for commercial markets. AVERT ensures customer’s business continuity by testing the efficiency of their current systems, their effectiveness of mitigating threats and evaluating the cost and efficacy of future procurements.
